The overarching theme is to understand the interaction between physical, chemical, biological environmental and human systems. To this end our group draws concepts from environmental chemistry, physics, microbiology, mathematical modeling, life cycle analysis and public health.
We use a combination of field based survey and monitoring, and computer modeling to try and advance our fundamental understanding of systems, as well provide information that may help inform policy decisions.
For example, we are a Center for Minamata Convention on Mercury. In early 2019 have signed an MoU with our environmental ministry and established a center to create a knowledge base for mercury in India and to increase awareness on the impacts of mercury.
